Gold Wing from Honda
The Gold Wing from Honda – what’s happened so far…
The Gold Wing was introduced in 1975by Honda as a 1000cc naked bike and has since evolved into the two-wheeled non plus ultra for the long haul. Generations of developers ensured that it has always remained true to itself. Over the decades, the Gold Wing always gained in size and displacement. In addition, the engineers continually raised the Gold Wing to the next level in terms of luxury, quality and comfort, setting it further and further apart from the competition.
Little side note: Our boss wasn’t even born in the year of publication….
What did the 2000s bring for the Gold Wing?
In 2018 the GL1800 and Gold Wing “Tour” were fundamentally evolved and redesigned to meet changing customer needs and the motorbike market. Thus, the models became leaner, lighter and more agile. Many new features strengthened their reputation as technology flagships. These also include the optionally available 7-speed dual clutch transmission (DCT).
The revised Gold Wing from Honda has since attracted the attention of a wider and younger target group. Motorcyclists who previously had nothing to do with the Gold Wing now realised what it was made of.
The years 2020 and 2021 brought changes
In 2020, Honda revised the chassis and improved handling at lower speeds. In addition, a powerful heart has been beating in the premium tourer ever since: an impressive six-cylinder boxer engine.
Since 2021, the technical forerunner has been bristling, for example, with:
- 7-inch TFT display,
- gyrocompass navigation,
- Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™,
- electric screen,
- smart key operation,
- 4 driving modes and Hill Start Assist.
Another highlight: it shines in a new livery.
Gold Wing from Honda means individuality
Honda’s press team has sent us some photos of the latest version of the Honda Gold Wing, so you can take a look at the bike.
Few Gold Wings you see on the road shine in their standard equipment; rather, each owner rebuilds their machine to suit their individual needs.
